Those are the 320 MB variants not the 640 MB variants. Only this one 640 MB variant is for 300 bucks and I think that is a typo.

WTF is Foxconn? :D

That is less than what I paid for my eVGA 7800GT and my eVGA 7900GT CO SC this time last year!

OIC now, didn't pay that much attention. Either way, their typo is your gain... If it goes into the cart as a 640MB card, then they have to give you a 640MB card for that price.

Typo is not a gain. I checked the manufacturer's link they gave and it is indeed a 320 MB card. Newegg is not responsible for any typos on the site. :rolleyes: Damn them!

On a brighter note, this means that I didn't overpay for my BFG 8800GTS OC 320 MB.. :nana:

You are right.. Its a typo.. That model # is a 320 meg card.

Yikes, that was an eye opener. Remind me to double check specs next time I order.

Anyone buy any of these and if so what driver is included, anything newer than 97.92.

I thought this post was about the 320meg versions. Sorry.

That's what I was just about to post. It's the 320 version NOT the 640.

It is a 320mb version and will be a great card for people who have a 19" LCD and just has a top resolution of 1280x1024 ,it should be perfect and I look for them to drop to under $250 pretty quick,and that way you could have a SLI system for $500 and they overclock great ,infact the memory overclocks better then the 640mb versions since it has 1.1ns and should reach a 1000mhz so the card should overclock to around 630/2000.should be a nice upgrade from a 7900GTX on 19" and 20" LCD monitors.
